EUPOL COPPS (the EU Coordinating Office for Palestinian Police Support) concluded on Tuesday 22 October 2019 the last leadership workshop for Palestinian female lawyers to further enhance their capabilities in commanding key role in the Palestinian Bar Association (PBA).
During the session, many of the participants praised the workshop which gave them a number of tips to engage with the leadership. The previous sessions for about two dozen female lawyers touched upon way forward and recommendations for continuing the efforts of empowering female lawyers in Palestine.
Jawad Obeidat, the head of the PBA, said he cannot wait for the day to see a female lawyer taking over his post in the near future. “I am confident you are capable to do it. You have a sufficient number (of female lawyers),” he said during a ceremony for distributing the certificates together with the head of EUPOL COPPS Mission Kauko Aaltomaa at the Ramallah based Mission’s Headquarters.
